Social, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud – the quadruplet; popularized as the acronym SMAC are continuing the next wave of IT Transformation which began with Web2.0. SMAC is driving consumerization of the IT creating an opportunity to CIOs to transform their role as business drivers rather than mere enablers of business decisions.
As SMAC technologies get absorbed in the IT fabric of organizations, challenges for organizations will change from driving adoption to balancing benefits realization with the security and governance concerns. When we set out todevelop this thought leadership, we realized that answers to questions raised are still evolving and hence we set out to survey CIOs/CTOs across the industry on the state of SMAC adoption in their organizations. This paper is an outcome of the analysis of the survey results juxtaposed with the collateral information about SMAC and emerging trends relating to them.
